What's the best way to capture, save, and then edit online videos such as on YouTube, news clips, etc.?

 

It doesn't need to be free, but it needs to be fairly easy to use. I am not a professional videographer. I just want to capture some short videos and then be able to edit out the parts I don't want.

 

I already have SnagIt. It is able to capture the videos, but I couldn't figure out how to wave the captures video as a .wav file or equivalent. It seems to want me to also buy Camtasia at $200 to be able to edit them. That's a little more than I wanted to spend for something that I will only use a few times and only use for simple editing.

 

What do you all use and recommend?

 

Thanks

i recently started using Lightworks to edit my videos, it was difficult to learn at first but if your patient and take the time to learn it, it becomes very user friendly and easy to use, i very highly recommend it....

 

here is my thread about it.......

link to download lightworks....

 

https://www.lwks.com/index.php?option=com_lwks&view=download&Itemid=206

 

if your using a windows computer you could also use Windows Movie Maker, its a very simple program to use but doesn't have as many features as Lightworks and it has limits on video formats.....one example is it will not accept videos recorded in MP4 format and thats one of the main reason i went to Lightworks

The "difficult to learn" part is not what I need and Lightworks is $440. That's more than double what Camtasia costs that I said was more than I would like to spend.

All I want to do is capture online videos and then cut out all but a couple of minutes that I am interested in. I don;t need any other fancy editing features.

I'm using Win XP. I heard that the version of Movie Maker for XP isn't very good.
